Fournier also has hit it off with Magic center Nik Vucevic, who grew up in Belgium speaking French. "He's a good offensive player: smart with a good basketball IQ," Vucevic says. Now, Fournier thinks he can prove himself. "I'm very excited because I know I'm going to handle the ball," he says. "That's what I like to do. In Denver, I was more of a stationary shooter, and that's not what I do best. So I'm very happy." Orlando Sentinel

Frye suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee when he bumped knees with teammate Ben Gordon during practice Thursday. Although team officials and Frye are relieved that an MRI exam didn’t show major damage, it’s unclear how severe the sprain is and it’s unclear how much time Frye will miss. Orlando Sentinel

"I don't know the severity,” Frye said this morning. “I don't really ask those questions. I feel pretty good. I know it's injured right now, but at the same time, I just want to take it day-by-day. I know it's super-cliché. But with knee things especially this time of year, I don't want anything nagging. I don't want any excuses for the year. “It’s a freak accident. It could’ve been way worse. I’m pretty impressed at how quickly they got me assessed, and now they’re starting to get me on some different things to help with it all, and I’m pretty confident that with the way I take care of my body I could be all right.” Orlando Sentinel

The results won’t start becoming public until next Wednesday when the Hornets play their first exhibition in Philadelphia. But the head coach sounds encouraged. “I’ve never seen anybody’s shooting mechanics change more drastically, in the year or so Mark has worked with him,” Steve Clifford said Monday. “He’s not Dell Curry, and that’s important for him to understand and us to understand. He’s played one way his whole life. Mike has always caught it and said, ‘I’ll drive it or pass it.’ Now he has more ability to shoot the ball. “If he can get to that point where he makes some shots, he’ll have a much different career.” Charlotte Observer

The Orlando Magic unveiled today new alternate Pride Jersey home uniforms, which will serve as the team's fourth uniform to go along with their home white, road blue and alternate black pinstripe uniforms. The sleeved, adidas Pride Jersey is made out of engineered mesh in Magic silver to represent “steel” – a rigid, unbending and relentless symbol of unity created to invoke a sense of “pride” and an unyielding commitment to competing at the highest level.

On Monday, the Magic are expected to announce they have signed guards Seth Curry, Peyton Siva and Drew Crawford and big man Kadeem Batts. But although Curry, Siva, Crawford and Batts are going to be training-camp invitees, they will not compete for spots on Orlando's season-opening roster. The team's plan is to waive them and, if they clear waivers, assign them to the Magic's D-League affiliate, the Erie BayHawks. Orlando Sentinel
